Military adviser says Israel or US attack is unlikely.
The Islamic regime should prepare to retaliate in the Middle East and across the globe against any enemy attack, Iranian military advisor Maj. Gen. Seyed Yahya Rahim Safavi said on Tuesday according to a Fars News Agency report.
"Wisdom tells us that Iran's Armed Forced should prepare and strengthen themselves for all-out defense and retaliatory attacks on the enemies even outside the region by maintaining their full preparedness and boosting their combat capabilities," Safavi stated.

Safavi added that a US or Israeli attack was unlikely. "Americans and the Zionists are not in proper conditions to launch a military attack against Iran."
Safavi serves as a military adviser to Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah
Ali Khamenei. Khamenei also said last week that Teheran's response to an
American attack would not be limited to the Middle East.
